The Freedom Tower is getting dwarfed:

At a kilometer high — that’s 3,280 feet — The Kingdom Tower will top the current tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, by 568 feet. Its 5.7 million sq. ft. interior will house a Four Seasons hotel, apartments, and the world’s highest observation deck. …

Oh, and the building is a collaboration between Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal’s Kingdom Holdings and … the Bin Laden Group. Awkwaaaaard.
